The great people–including fellow SHUWPF graduate and overall awesome Cynthia Ravinski–over at The Greater Portland Scribists just posted my guest post, “Diagnosis Anthology.” It’s part of their Anthology Celebration series. This is my take on why it is important, but why it is also hard to get people to write, edit, and publish these kinds of books.
Need more enticing? Okay, here’s a little teaser:
As a writer, I find anthologies invaluable. The reader in me finds them essential. But if you were to go to any publisher, you would find they tend to be hesitant with them. I know because I have an idea for an anthology and went around trying to get a feel for who could be interested and what I, as the editor, would need to do on my end. Let me tell you, if you thought being a writer was a tough job, look into being an anthology editor. Writing will seem like a cakewalk.
If you want the rest–and there is quite a bit more–you’ll have to read the rest there.
